Simulation of the tsunami generated by the 2011, Mw9.0, Tohoku-Oki earthquake, Japan


My list of publication is accessible via the Géoazur database or the Google scholar webpage

Research Interests

► Imaging earthquake source complexity (2011 Japan earthquake animation),

► Seismic cycle (simple illustration of the concept, with GPS),

► Inverse problems,

► Seismic and tsunami waveform simulation,

► Seafloor distributed sensing using fibre optics,

► Tsunami hazard evaluation,

► Ionospheric perturbations caused by earthquakes and tsunami

Research projects

2015-2019 : E-POST project funded by ANR JC (PI :M.Vergnolle) to study early-postseismic transients. In charge of WP2.

2014-2019 : Hydroseis project funded by ANR JC (PI : F.Cappa). The main objective is to improve our understanding of the role of fluids on the rupture of earthquake faults.

2013-2017 : TWIST project funded by Office of Naval Research, USA (PI :Ph.Lognonné) TWIST stands for "Tsunami Warning and Ionosphere Seismic Tomography".

2012-2015 : "SEAFOOD starter" funded by INSU-CNRS, Géoazur, OCA and the university of Nice-Sophia-Antipolis (PI : A.Sladen). SEAFOOD stands for "SEA­-bottom Fiber­ Optic Observatory for distributed Deformation measurements".

2011-2013 : TO-EOS funded by ANR (PI : A.Sladen). Project involving French (IPG Paris, ENSG, CEA) and Japanese Institutes (ERI Tokyo, GSI Japan) to study the 2001, Mw9.0 Tohoku (Japan) earthquake.
